Just heard my friend and colleague from the good ol' days of the Washington Times (before dread respectability set in) bring down the house at the Kirkpatrick Society with her first presentation of her hilarious -- but sharply pointed -- new book, When Did White Trash Become the New Normal?: A Southern Lady Asks the Impertinent Question.
While Charlotte doesn't examine perpetual youth in her travels through the culture (my own springboard in The Death of the Grown-Up), I can certainly relate to these fresh insights and trenchant observations (and white trash recipes!) from Charlotte's inimitable Delta perspective.
